‘PRESIDENT OBAMA IS A MONKEY AND WELFARE RECIPIENTS ARE LAZY’: Here’s The #Ferguson Emails That Got Two Cops Fired

Two Ferguson officers were fired after multiple emails were discovered.

The emails that resulted in the firings of two police officers and a court clerk in the city of Ferguson, Missouri were released on Thursday.

Seven in particular are remarkably racist, including one that was previously released in which disgraced police officer Richard Henke says of President Barack Obama; ‘What black man holds a steady job for four years.’

In the other emails President Obama is labelled a monkey, welfare recipients are described as ‘lazy’ and unable to speak English before being compared to dogs and black individuals are First Lady Michelle Obama is called a tribeswoman.

One email, sent by city clerk Mary Ann Twitty to Captain Henke and former police sergeant William Mudd, and obtained by the Washington Post, shows President Ronald Reagan holding a monkey and feeding it a bottle.

The caption underneath reads; ‘Rare photo of Ronald Reagan babysitting Barack Obama in early 1962.’

Twitty wrote at the top of that email; ‘Some of these emails just touch me more than others.’

All three were removed from their jobs after the emails were discovered.
